The rhythmic sound of a train going along a train track was soothing, and possibly the last beautiful sound Tiger was going to hear before he arrived at his destination. He was the only one left on the train, no one wanted to head into the dreaded town of Southmount. Once a prosperous fishing town, it was recently overrun by demons of all shapes and sizes. Women and children were kidnapped for 'personal uses' or for sacrifices to some demon god. Men often disappeared, probably to become slaves to demons, or become demons themselves. Tiger was a bounty hunter, to earn money his job was to hunt mischievous demons or when there weren't any worth his time, famous robbers and criminals. Every day he walked past the request board, and every day the same Southmount SOS request from the town mayor was there. There was no one brave enough to take it, even with the handsome reward. He only took it because it seemed the most challenging, it was boring chasing down low tier demons, and it was boring capturing predictable criminals. He wanted a challenge, he wanted to be like a tiger tracking his prey strategically - like he was born to do. The puppeteer of the lesser demons running amok in the town was a powerful and rare demon, he or she had immense power and even the demons were afraid of it. It demanded sacrifices every fortnight, and if not presented one, will raid the food larders and cut off the ships that came down to Southmount to re-stock the food and fresh water. He got off the train and looked at the dreary stone walls surrounding the town, the mayor was waiting for him at the entrance. "Oh, what a relief it is to see you. Come in, come in. I'll take you to my home, you must be tired." He allowed himself to be lead through the winding streets of Southmount, memorising the streets in case he'd get lost in the near future.
